can't be discouraged by what is, we've got to keep pushing for what ought to be. the america we ought to leave to our children, mindful that the hardships we face are nothing compared to those dr. king and his fellow marchers faced 50 years ago and that if we maintain our faith in ourselves and in the possibilities of this nation, there is no challenge we cannot surmount. >> joining me today, distinguished senior fellow, bob herbert, contributing editor for "rolling stone" and visiting scholar at nyu, eric bates. and congressional reporter, sahil kapur. joining me from washington is nbc justice correspondent pete williams. pete, you talked recently about the march on washington. why don't you tell us about that. >> reporter: washington, d.c., in the summer of 1963 was more than a little nervous about the prospect of a big civil rights march coming to the city, and that worry extended from the president on down, a fear that if it went badly, it could derail the efforts to pass the nation's most important civil rights law. ♪ it's easy to see now why the march on washington is celebrat

on in egypt to what happened in latin america and in the sort of dirty wars in argentina and chile and how that effectively destabilized a region and it had an antiamerican stance, the legacy we feel today. you look at hugo chavez and where edward snowden was trying to flee. i wonder if you think that's possibly what could happen in parts of the middle east? >> sure. you can go around the world and look at regions where the united states has backed authoritarian regime. once the regions fall, there's no lack of american hostility whether we talk about iran, latin america or other countries that have had this experience. there's no question that what's happening now will not be good for america's standing, not only in egypt but throughout the region. >> thank you. foreign affairs magazine jonathan tapperman. tamara oliver fbi from human rights watch. thank you all and ayman mohyeld mohyeldin. >>> ted cruz has a new message for republicans on the fence about shutting down the government. don't blink. we'll have the details coming up next. ♪ i'm a hard, hard worker every day. ♪ ♪ i'm a

continues to sort of say except that this week we are most of america is waking up to reality that parts of al qaeda are alive and well and functioning enough to warrant the closure of embassies 19 or 20 across the arab world. so how do you even -- what does he present to the american people in terms of our victory or ongoing war against al qaeda? >> right. i don't think most people are really making fine distinctions between core al qaeda and al qaeda affiliates and whether the al qaeda in pakistan is different than al qaeda in yemen. people hear al qaeda and they get worried and so any time you say there is an al qaeda threat that leads to the mass shutdown of embassies and consulates, it leads people to think the threat is still out there and clearly they haven't been decimated. this is going to continue through the president's vacation. there will be questions of what kind of images you have of the president on vacation while there's this ongoing threat. it sort of will hang over everything because even though they will open up embassies and consula consulates, there will not be a de

that brought sweeping republican gains two years later. america seems to be left with the status quo. the gop kept control of the house. the division between the parties is as sharp as ever. that doesn't mean it wasn't worth the ride. we are treated to spicy anecdote like the empty chair in tampa. balls says top romney advisers were sickened. he walked out of the room and threw up. there was insight into the mind set of an obama team ready to engage in hostilities. case and point, jim messina said my favorite philosopher is mike tyson. he said everyone has a plan until you punch them in the face. my job is to punch them in the face. it was fought out in small ways. if 2008 was inspiring, 2012 was negative and nasty. joining us is dan balls, author of "collision 2012." dan, thanks so much for joining the program and congrats on the book. >> thank you. glad to be here. >> we are happy to have you. the future of elections in america, after 2012, given the prolonged and insane nature, what do you think each party learned and how do you think it's going to affect 2016? >> you speak of long campaig

oe 11 many of the most important news outlets in america abdicated their role as a check to power. from a business perspective, this was the obvious strategy, but what benefitted the institutions ended up costing the public dearly. jared, i would ask you as a former administration official, do you think that we are at a point where the media, where "the new york times," "washington post," papers of record have felt so threatened by prosecution or persecution from the administration that they wouldn't be able to come forward with important information? >> i don't think we're there yet but i think we're headed in that direction. if you actually listen to many of the journalists who are very high ranking in this particular space, the folks who have really done a good job of bringing this kind of information forward, they will tell you we're more than a little bit spooked. that's not moving in the direction that it should be. in fact, frankly, i think a lot of what you heard from snowden not really coming down on either side of a lot of complicated issues there really supports their v

for how potential military action will secure american national security interests, reserve america's credibility, deter the future use of chemical weapons and be a part of our broader policy and strategy. senior obama administration officials are expected to brief members of congress on the situation sometime today. although it's still unclear whether the obama administration will allow a vote to take place before any military strikes. it's worth noting that in 2007 when then senator barack obama was asked when presidents had the authority to launch a military strike without congressional approval, he said, quote, the president does not have power under the constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation. joining me today, special correspondent for the daily beast and also editor of democracy, a journal of ideas, and steve clemens, anchor of bbc world news america, and time senior correspondent michael crowley whose cover story is the unhappy warrior. also joining us is nbc news chief

"there is no plan b. there is no "what if," said one republican lawmaker. he said he talked to a handful of members who met with heritage action and the group had had no viable alternative to the president caving in. that's leaving us in the lurch. that is nor proper planning." but who needs a game plan? who needs compromise? if you're rush limbaugh, not the gop. >> are you suggesting republicans shouldn't negotiate and have biapproach with democrats? >> well, yeah, pretty much, because i don't think we have anything in common with them. >> joining me today, former national press secretary for the obama campaign, ben labolt, managing ed are to have the grio.com and an msnbc contributor, joy reid, u.s. managing editor of the "financial times," martin dixon. joining us from capitol

is truly a global citizen, though he was born in the united states of america, i think part of me wonders how much this weighs on him. certainly i think the problems he faces domestically must weigh on him. to be president of the united states at a time when there is slaughter happening in syria to the tune of 100,000 people killed, 1.7 million refugees flooding into other parts of the arab world, egypt, which is completely destabilized where you have atrocities happening, slayings of people on buses, unarmed civilians, tear gas and/or chemical attacks in syria, it is, i think, hard to sort of reconcile what we think of the president and who he is as a man. >> right. >> with the inaction from the courthous white house. i wonder what your take is on that knowing him as you do. >> i'm sure that weighs on him terribly. he's also a pragmatic man. he has advisers who are telling him what his options are and what our options are and they are limited. that's not a satisfying thing to hear and it's frustrating but he's also realistic. he knows some of these things, what you want to do takes time.

of the world. >> this is a military to military relationship than just the dollar amount. the idea that america would want to just give that up is simplistic. it may sound sort of very principled and of course that's the way the politicians would like us to believe that foreign policy is run, with the exception of president bush's second inaugural run, that's not the way that foreign politics has worked its way through foreign policies. the leverage of these dollars is pretty small when you're talking about a regime that's fighting for its very survival. that's why we supported mubarak all these years. but this president supported his ousting. and other than that, we are back to where we have been for many, many decades with egypt. >> sam, it's become as it always is political football. it is i guess a good time to be republican in terms of foreign policy because they can criticize without actually having to propose specific measures. how do you think that plays out in the coming months if the president doesn't actually do anything? >> that's a really impossible question to answer. the people w

times about drone strikes and the effects those have regionally in terms of attitudes in america. it's worth noting in yemen in 2013 there were drone strikes, in 2012 there were more. our strategy is not talked about as much as embassy closures but one that may have much greater repercussions not just in yemen but of course in the arab world. i wonder sitting in egypt as you are, is there attention being paid towards the drone strikes over where you are in cairo? >> well, at this stage not very much so and that is because the story in yemen is unfolding away from the political environment here in egypt. believe me when i say egyptians have been preoccupied with american foreign policy because of what is going on here. right now there is no doubt that american foreign policy on large across the region is coming under a lot of criticism from many different aspects including counter terrorism, especially the drone strikes especially given the fact that the united states operates with so much impunity. it comes into the context of egypt when people, particularly those here critical of u.

, america's deteriorated standing in the middle east? >> the way that iran and its ally hezbollah and syria look at this possible strike and look at the u.s. pour rein policy against those three in specific is that there's an access that they're trying to break. they describe themselves as an access to western imperialism and israel. they try to maintain that. obviously israel is in their perspective the greatest threat. more importantly, they have a conduit of transferring weapons and funds between iran and syria and hezbollah to here in lebanon. that's an access that the three of them feel is important to count oar the balance. they have come out and actually said an attack on syria is an attempt to break up that access giving them the right to respond and to defend. they don't explain whether that's going to be militarily or how they're going do tla. but i do think that that is one of the major concerns for u.s. military planners, which is the intended stated objective of any u.s. military strike now may be to simply try and limit or perhaps even punish the regime for using chemical weap
